About Us

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to our school.

At Chulmleigh College we pride ourselves on offering excellent educational opportunities to all pupils. 

Our pupils have a strong reputation for getting some of the best exam results in the region, and an enriched school life is also highly important to us; we have a proud tradition in music, outdoor education, the arts and sport.  As a school we value courtesy, hard work and respect, and set high standards of behaviour; promoting self-discipline, resilience, responsibility and working together as a community.

Our pupils read an astonishing amount of literature, and develop themselves by making the most of the array of opportunities available.  This is all possible because teaching and support staff create the best opportunities for our pupils.  We are very proud of our team, who work hard to make our school a happy place where we learn together in a formal, warm environment. We are also proud of the excellent relationships we have with our pupils, families and friends within the community.

Ofsted inspected us in March 2018 and their comments included ‘strong leadership, a strong emphasis on the performing arts, a collegiate approach, very high expectations and excellent standards of conduct’. To read the report please visit

Every day at Chulmleigh is an ‘Open Day’.  We welcome visits and I always endeavour to personally show any visitors around our remarkable school.

I look forward to meeting you.


Michael Johnson, Executive Headteacher
